ANNA MARIA – With just two games left in the seven-game regular season, the co-ed adult flag football league at The Center has a new leader. TBT, now with a 4-0-1 record, is at the top of the charts after week-five action.
The easy win over team Cortez Deep Sea Fishing last Thursday night puts the TBT squad one win over Solid Rock Construction, Moss Builders and Prosper Bradenton, all with 3-2-0 records going into week six of play.
Solid Rock Construction started the season off as the league leader, with a week one win over Prosper Bradenton and a week three win over Moss Builders. Recent losses dropped the team into second place, with the Moss team in third.
Prosper Bradenton’s 26-12 loss to Moss Builders this week places the team in fourth. The Prosper team, without Ray Gardner, who is still recovering from a torn Achilles, fought hard against Moss Builders, with two touchdown passes by QB Jon Moss.
Moss found his father, Ed Moss, on a TD play to put six points on the board. Teammate Jesse Skipper is credited with two sacks on Moss Builder’s quarterback, Ryan Moss.
The speed of Skipper could not stop R. Moss, brother of J. Moss, from throwing for four touchdowns in the team’s win. In addition to the three catches for scores by Jess Griffin, Michael Bolognone had a TD grab of his own.
The defensive game for each team made it difficult for the opponents. In addition to the Prosper Bradenton sacks, Zack Long made a critical defensive move with a big interception of an R. Moss pass.
Moss Builders’ J.B. Shuck made three critical takeaways in the game, preventing J. Moss from finding his target while on offense.
Griffin, with a total of nine catches in the game, was also the target of two extra-point conversions for Moss Builders, helping the team to solidify their 14-point win against Prosper.
Two teams hold the fifth and sixth positions in the rankings with 2-3-0 records. Team Shady Lady is just ahead of the Sandbar team with a win in the head-to-head matchup in the first week of the season.
Holding on to hope and knowing that all of the teams make the playoffs, the Cortez Deep Sea Fishing players are fighting this week for their second win of the season. The team faces Shady Lady during week six play.
The number one team, TBT, battles it out on the community center field this Thursday night against the Solid Rock Construction team. With a win, Solid Rock is one step closer to capturing the top seed going into the quarterfinal round of playoffs.
